October 8th-11th, 2021

at Alpine Scout Camp

The Big Apple Jambo is a special event put on by the Greater New York Councils’ Activities Committee for Scouters of all ages. The event allows Units, Scouts, and their families to experience a Jamboree type event close to home. This means a chance for Scouting activities at epic proportions! Camp programs, shows and campfires, camping, hundreds of Scouting peers, and meals provided!

What is the Big Apple Jambo?

The Big Apple Jambo is an opportunity for Scouts of all ages to rediscover the adventure of Scouting by joining together at Alpine Scout Camp in Alpine, New Jersey. This is a “Once in a Scout-time“ event!

Scouting is a community and a movement that is at its best when we can all get outside together. The BAJ program uses the full outdoor facilities of Alpine Scout Camp and will host additional program providers for an activity midway.

Troops, Crews, and Ships are invited to a full weekend event with 3 nights of camping and program in a jamboree environment with shows, campfires, and a trad-o-ree. Cub Scouts and their families are invited for 2 nights of camping or to come for the day on Sunday for special Cub Scout activities across the awesome John E. Reeves Cub World, even including the World Championship Pinewood Derby!
